View Over Kyoto

This is the view from the top of the Kyoto train station.  The reflection is caused by the large plate window.  The Tokyo
Tower (on the right) is helpful for figuring out where you are.

Rock Garden This is the Zen Garden in Ryoan-ji. From the viewing platform you attempt to see all 15 stones, but only 14 (or fewer) are visible from any position. This fifteenth century garden has all sorts of tricks. The far wall isn't even close to level and gives you a sense of depth from the forced perspective. The trees behind the back wall all have seasonal version (Cherry blossums, or falls colors, evergreen or deciduous.). The garden runs roughly east to west and the viewing platform is on the north side so the shadows change over the course of the day.
